The main living room has underfloor heating and a dynamic open-plan layout with different spaces interconnected but separated by design: ideal for large groups yet intimate enough for a couple on their own. A wall of glass in the dining area maximises the stunning views across the estuary and slides open onto the broad, south-facing terrace running the length of the house. French doors to the side open onto a shaded Loggia with soft seating for chilling out on hot days, with two other areas for alfresco dining at one end and ping-pong at the other.
The garden beyond is predominantly flat lawn - perfect for Badminton or Boules, giving way to open woodland directly above Rock beach. The beach, the water-sport centre and the ferry point linking Rock to Padstow are all within 5 - 10 minutes' walk via the lane or directly over the wild rolling dunes that surround the house. The kitchen is well-equipped and central to the space, its huge island creating a natural gathering point to ensure that the cook is never abandoned or if outside caterers are used, separates the working area from the rest. A 'Snug' TV or playroom provides a complete retreat for any age and can convert into a safe soft play area with the addition of a child gate at the door.
The Utility, Wet room & Downstairs WC are accessed from the entrance hall. (Detailed below)
